I haven't known Amarachi for all my life, but when I met her I knew she was such a happy spirit. She brought karaoke and singing into my life. She showed me that even though I have an illness I can still be anything I want to be if I put my mind into it. Amarachi will never be forgotten. She will forever live in our hearts and her legacy and spirit will never be forgotten. Lord bless Amarachi!

I met Amarachi 5 years ago....and to know her was to love her. She always wore a smile even when she felt bad. She was one of the strongest individuals I know. I know she would a been an amazing physician. Heaven gained a beautiful angel. I can only imagine the stories her and Dr. Loyd are sharing easy sweet girl!

Amarachi was a student of mine in her first year of medical school and having her in my group was a delight. Her sweet, kind, gentle and compassionate spirit and her infectious smile are fondly remembered. The joy and love that Amarachi brought to us will never be forgotten.
My prayers are with you all at this very difficult time.

What defines a family? Is it coming from the same kindred or sharing the same blood? No! To us, what defines a family is being there for the good and bad times!!

As we go through this process, let us remember the meaning of the name, Amarachi, which means “Grace of God!” Amarachi was every meaning of that. She was graceful and always placed God first. She was a warrior and fought to make her dreams come true. She’s a true testament that no matter how hard life is, never give up on your goals!

Our last time together, is something we will hold dear to our heart. We went to a local karaoke spot in Atlanta. We got on the mic singing as a girl group, like we did as little children. We performed the Spice Girls with no care in the world, off beat and lack of choreography, but it worked! We were laughing with no fear of sisters! That’s how we will remember Amarachi! Full of laughter, the sweetest angel, and always happy to be around her family & friends! She will always be our sister, daughter, and best friend!
We will miss her, but our memory of her will live forever in our heart! May the lord grant her everlasting peace!

To the rest of the Anukam family, we send our love and prayers to you during these difficult times. No one can tell you how to grieve. All we can do is offer our support and love! God bless you and God bless our angel!

May your peaceful and cheerful soul rest in the Lord. You left at the time we're starting to get closer as cousins. You were such a determined person, a rare gem with a heart of meek and kind! I miss you dear cousin, Rest well!!!

Amarachi was a ray of sunshine in every life she touched I am sure. Mine included. Thinking of and praying for your family.

Amarachi was such a happy, joyful, and giving person. You could never tell when she was down or hurt because she was always optimistic. At every function or event it was never a dull moment with her because she was always full of positive energy. That will definitely be missed. She was an inspiration for being able to get through high school, college, and medical school fighting sickle cell. Just knowing that my last time seeing you was at your graduation party earlier this year sickens me. As we all mourn, this is not the end. Let’s cherish the memories and all the good times we had with Amarachi. I pray for strength and healing for the Anukam family. This is my story. God Bless! Prayers and condolences to the Anukam family.
